Kristaps Ģelzis
Die Unechte Ruhe / Artificial Peace



Kristaps Ģelzis works are created from observing present, from inconspicuous weekday events, which become his art's way out (point of exit) and result in the same time. Using all available contemporary technologies and media and traditional watercolor painting and drawing, Kristaps Ģelzis virtuously and ironically combines individual in a one form with his time and reality, history and tradition, and challenge the spectator to a dialog. And work of art turns into a social space, where we are looking for relationship with what is existing around us.

The new exhibition of Kristaps Ģelzis shows large size drawings about life existing around us and looking for the answer - what is this time.
